Fishing Highlights:

With the flows fluctuating at night between 1000 and 1300,I did not think we would be out of the waders for a while. I was wrong both Allen and myself put on the wet wading socks for the first time this year. While the sun was out it was amazing. After lunch not so much, back to the waders. Allen started the day off with a dry dropper rig and was hooked up right away with fish taking the droppers. We then switched to a nymph rig after it slowed for a couple of minutes and hooked lots of fish on that rig as well. Allen hooked and landed a nice twenty six inch rainbow. After lunch the clouds and rain moved in.It slowed just a tad for a while but stayed hooked up pretty consistent. Allen once again landing big rainbow that was around twenty six inches as well. It was a great time to be able to fish with Allen in more ways than one. Always enjoy the fishing, but just as much I enjoy the conversations. See you soon brother.

The fishing is great.  Partly Cloudy skies and 56-59 degree weather. The water temperature was between 40-43 degrees and Off-Color.
